Increasing the Hoarding Client's Readiness for Change

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Clients who struggle with chronic clutter and hoarding issues may express great enthusiasm during the initial phone call or consultation, only to seem resistant when the decluttering efforts actually begin. One great frustration - for family members, therapists, organizers, and clients - is when it feels like the therapeutic process is one of forcing individuals to make the changes they indicated wanting for themselves. In this presentation, we review reasons why clients may seem resistant to change when they actually may be dealing with other struggles, and how to engage them. By helping to build your clients' readiness for change, you can clear the way for a less cluttered space.
